Psst, Mr. Fauci, Halloween comes before Christmas.
Interesting study covered in an article by Patrick Reilly at nypost.com: “… those who have a dependence on marijuana, alcohol, cocaine, opioids and tobacco were more likely to contract the coronavirus despite receiving both vaccination shots… The chance of infection rose from 3.6% to 7%. Trouble is, what will the next study find?… A related headline: “High spirits: Weed company to sell THC ‘beverage enhancer’ kit in New York.” America has become a leftist’s paradise — and they’re still miserable!
No surprise in this NYP headline: “Delivery men accuse NYC of milking them with parking tickets during pandemic.” It always rankles me to see a traffic agent writing a ticket for a vehicle providing a valuable service to the neighborhood, especially given the fact that it will be moved within a half-hour at most.
Although I do not object to vaccine mandates, my gut tells me they’re wrong.

I haven’t purchased a Nike product in at least 15 years. Here’s a newsmax.com headline that ensures my personal boycott will continue: “GOP Slams Nike’s Decision to End Sales in Israel.” Will the company end sales in Russia, China or Iran?
Crystalline logic in this headline from foxnews.com: “Ben & Jerry’s co-founders stumped on why ice cream brand singles out Israel, continues to serve red states.” Kudos.
This FN headline speaks for itself: “New Superman will be revealed as bisexual in an upcoming DC Comics issue.” First issue: Rear Deliveries.
